Madonna’s Homeless Brother Says He’s Closer To Strangers Than His Sister

Madonna's homeless brother, Anthony Ciccone, needed stitches in his forehead for resisting arrest on Sunday -- he was said to be drunk.

Now three days later, the 56-year-old is back on the cold streets of Traverse City, Michigan, and says he is closer with his homeless compatriots than his own superstar sister.

“I get all this crap because my sister’s really famous, and I get crap all the time. It’s endless," he tells Inside Edition.

The pop star reportedly hasn't spoken to her brother for 20 years -- the family has been trying to get him to go to rehab.

When asked if he thinks he drinks too much, he said, “I think I drink what I drink.”

Is that what caused the family rift? "According to my father, yes," he says.

Michigan's most famous homeless man says he has nerve damage from frostbite, but, "It helps to have thermal underwear."

The high in Travese City on Wednesday was 48 degrees.

      It’s not Madonna’s fault. Obviously Anthony chose his own lot in life – i.e. the bottle.
